Located in the hills above the thriving coastal town of Margate, these adjoining properties are situated on a rural cul-de-sac and enjoy a wonderful sense of privacy, yet are less than twenty minutes to the city for work, fine dining, shopping and entertainment. From here it’s just a quick drive to some of southern Tasmania’s most protected and beautiful beaches and close to local schools with school bus pickup at the corner of the street, and only minutes to the local golf course or the Margate Marina for the bountiful fishing to be found in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and beyond.
Comprising two houses on separate titles (12.5 acres in total), both properties have recently been completely vermin-proofed with new boundary fences all round and automatic front gates. There are two dams (one spring-fed) and numerous horse riding trails nearby. This is the perfect location for anyone wanting to enjoy the country lifestyle and be a part of a fantastic local community, yet still just a quick drive to the city and all it represents — a rare opportunity to secure quality acreage this close to the city.
If you are seriously into horses and looking for the perfect setup, then this is definitely a property for your consideration – all the hard work has already been done.
Relaxed and tranquil and set on 5.25 acres, this established equestrian property is immaculate. The pristine pasture has been divided for rotational grazing and is securely fenced with timber/galvanized posts and electric fencing. The stable complex features three boxes fitted with luxurious Comfort StallTM matting which also saves time, money and effort and there are automatic lights installed for coat conditioning. There is a spacious feed/hay section, 11kg washing machine to handle even the heaviest rugs, laundry tub, electric chaff cutter, lockable tack room, storage loft, undercover tack-up area and fully enclosed undercover hot water (instant gas) wash bay. The fully fenced 60x20m all-weather dressage arena is floodlit to Australian Standards and has a sound system installed for practising your freestyle or just to enjoy riding to music. There is also a separate floodlit lunge ring. The unmetered/unlimited supply of bore water on tap to all paddocks allows the pasture to be maintained all year round (however irrigation is not very often necessary as the property is situated in a reliable rainfall area).
The well-presented north-east facing three bedroom brick veneer home attracts all day sun and has been recently renovated with a new kitchen comprising high quality European stainless steel appliances, Qasair range hood and granite bench top. The house has made to measure display and entertainment units which will remain in it, complete with ceiling-mounted movie projector, large projector screen and surround sound. After riding, indulge in either a spa bath or massage shower and then relax and entertain in the appealing outdoor entertaining area.
The spacious gardens include an established orchard and a micro watering system to make life easy. There is never a shortage of water – as well as the bore water there are five rainwater tanks (2x5000gl + 3 smaller tanks).
The excellent outbuildings are designed to accommodate the needs of everyone in the family — in addition to the stables there is a spacious four bay workshop/blokes’ shed that has a freestanding wood heater, lounge and TV (there is a possibility of the pool table as well, depending on whether we can take it with us to WA or not), with loads of tool storage space and roller door access to two of the bays. There is a separate high-roofed garage for the boat and horse float, and a delightful stone studio close to the house.
